LG's New WIDEBOOK Notebook Series Promises a Cinematic Experience


LG Electronics today unveiled its new WIDEBOOK notebook range. Each model in the series features a wide 16:9 HD LED-backlit display and Intel Core 2 Duo processor.

The WIDEBOOK range comprises five models -- the R580/R560, R480/R460 and R380.

"Notebooks are more popular than desktop PCs in many parts of the world due to their mobility and connectivity. The key to success in the market going forward is to design lighter, more stylish notebooks with powerful PC-like functions," said Dr. Skott Ahn, President and CEO of LG Electronics Mobile Communications Company. "We believe that LG?s advanced technology and experience in the mobile sector positions us well to deliver cutting-edge products to our consumers."



The WIDEBOOK series is available in various screen sizes, with the R580 and R560 boasting a 15.6" display while the R480 and R460 units include a 14" screen and the R380 packs a 13.3" panel. The R580 and R480 are positioned as premium models and sport a stylish design, while the R560 and R460 are reliable everyday workhorses and the R380 offers a blend of performance at an affordable price.

The WIDEBOOK series boast a 16:9 widescreen display optimized for HD content and ships in 1600 x 900 and 1368 x 768 HD pixel resolutions, depending on the model. The LED backlight also means that the screens draw 15-20% less power than existing notebooks, which also helps boost battery life. Each machine in the range includes SRS TruSurround HD sound.

The premium R580 notebook also includes a Blu-ray drive.

The WIDEBOOK range packs Intel Core 2 Duo processors with 2GB or 4GB of turbo memory and a NVIDIA GeForce graphics chip with up to 1GB of DDR2 video memory. According to tests using 3DMark06, these graphics subsystems offer between three and six times the performance of Intel?s GMA X4500MHD chipset, according to LG.



LG has bundled a Smart Pack with the WIDEBOOK range. Smart Indicator is a customizable quick-launch feature that helps the user set up a list of frequently used functions for quick and easy access. Smart Care and Smart Recovery provide intelligent diagnosis and repair of system errors.

The WIDEBOOK R380 also includes a Smart On feature that enables the machine to be booted in only five seconds. Smart On enables users to rapidly access commonly-used applications including a web browser, messenger, games, photo viewer and MP3 player.

The WIDEBOOK series includes a 3G modem chipset to enable convenient and easy access to the internet. This feature provides a straightforward connection to wireless networks in any location offering GSM, GPRS, EDGE, UMTS or HSDPA networks.

Other features include a 1.3-megapixel webcam, an e-SATA port to connect with current-generation hard drives as well as a High Definition Multimedia Interface (HDMI) connector.



The WIDEBOOK is also available in a range of colors including shiny white and crystal black colors for the R580 / R560 and R480 / R460 to add a sleek look and feel. The R380 is designed for the youth market and is available in white, black and pink schemes.

The five new WIDEBOOK notebooks will be rolled out first in Turkey, Dubai and Saudi Arabia, followed by other countries in Asia, Europe, North America and Latin America throughout September.
